Thursday the 5th.

Sunshine and nothing bad happened. I went out and played with Dixie and Ditto for a while. They were having fun and so was I. They ran laps around the barn playing keep away. It was a good day.

The people with the chicken eatin dogs, happened to be friends down the road will make it right and the dogs are tied up. If they are caught loose, they will be incarcerated permanently. One of the hens that survived is the oldest hen we have. She probably doesn't even lay any more. She is blind in one eye and has a funny leg so she limps around. She got that way in the first dog attack we had several years ago and she got away. We thought she would die but she lived to survive an attack of a wild critter for life two. She disappeared that time and we thought she was dead but after a few days came hobbling out. Now she survived another. I was so glad to see her. We call her Lucky.

Bob calls our place the funny farm because of the funny animals we have. The horses each have their own personalities, the donkey is a clown, the goat thinks he is King Tut or something like that. His name is Oliver. We have the gimpy chicken and Pretty Boy the rooster with no tail left. He is embarrased.

Tomorrow I am going to a baby shower for the mama of our next great granchild. She is due to be born in about 3 weeks. It will be fun to have a tiny baby around again.

I just looked at the calendar and my oldest, bestest friend's birthday is tomorrow. She and I have been friends since we were 4 I think. Her name is Louise and she lives in Denton, TX. I will have to remember to call her.


  1. Good morning, Lea! Thank God the neighbors are going to make it right by you and Bob for the chickens you lost! Who knew that chickens have 9-lives? It could be Lucky is such a tough old bird now, the dogs couldn't get a good hold on her! Lucky for her! LOL Hopefully your "dark cloud" has moved on! Perhaps you need to do a piece on each of your "funny farm" animals. I have so enjoyed the pictures and stories about your horses and, of course, Yuma, the mule! Accept God's blessings for this day! Hugs!!

  2. Now that is a lucky chicken! She has earned her name. And, you have good neighbors, too--and your sick horses are well! That was a happy ending.

  3. Hi Lea- There's something for you over on my blog. Blessings!
